Butternut Squash 3 Ways

Updated: Oct 15, 2021

It's incredible how many meals and unique pallets you can satisfy from one medium to large size butternut squash. Just one butternut squash made a great side dish for dinner, 3-4 baby puree meals and a sweet treat for my toddler (he has no idea that a vegetable he isn't very fond of is a main ingredient)!

This versatile squash kept the entire family fed and happy. Oh how I love squash season. Recipe and process down below :)
